The script isn't being removed, just changed to use the generic file analysis events instead of http_entity_data.

And the generic file events don't currently specify any direction information, so HTTP extraction will do both request and response bodies, but they can't be controlled independently.  Do I need to add an 'is_orig' flag to at least the 'file_new' event?
